Vacuum drying is an essential process in modern industry. In particular, for the food and pharmaceutical industries, vacuum drying is more energy and time efficient, drastically reducing processing times. It is also safe for drying material where applying heat might degrade the product. For instance, you can use vacuum drying to safely evacuate moisture from salads without degrading their taste or health standards; similarly, you can use this technology to dry a heat-sensitive pharmaceutical drug.
